TOP 10 COUNTIES – No. 9 – NORTH-WEST WALES

Only number 9 ?

Wait and see what’s Number 1.

My completely unscientific chart goes foreign.

Technically, I think I can drive the 200 miles into Conwy, Gwynedd and Anglesey for a half, but if I stop near Wrexham for a comfort break I’m arrested and put to work in the Bass mirror factory at Mold. Risks.

GREAT scenery here, headed by the Matt le Tissier checkpoint on Snowdon,

but it was Conwy that blew me away last time.

Conwy

And Llandudno is awesome, which is an anagram of Orme.

It took me 53 years to explore the Llyn peninsula, and find this classic outside gents at the pub on the beach.

But you want to see pubs. So here’s some corkers, from Beaumaris to Bangor to Caernarfon.

TOP 100 PUBS – BLACK BOY, CAERNARFON

All 3 of those had excellent Bass on, perfect to wash down the hangover breakfast and give yourself another one.

OK, the locals are a little odd,

but it’s a small price to pay for gorgeous pub interiors

Albion, Conwy

and a tremendous number of identical pale beers.

And they’re not ALL cowboys in Conwy.

And not ALL the small buildings are micropubs.

  1. The Local Government Act 1972 replaced thirteen administrative counties created in 1889 with eight new administrative counties from 1974, then the Good Beer Guide reduced these eight to six.
    Whatever next, Wales as a unitary authority with its own parliament ?

  2. Interesting list of pubs and a reminder that I’ve missed several of the best ones in the area. It took me two visits to the Albion to really appreciate what a great pub it is to sit in. On the first visit it felt bright and kind of cold.

  3. “Only number 9 ?”

    The Beatles did well with a number 9; but that involved some sort of aural revolution.

    “My completely unscientific chart goes foreign.”

    You finally put in a decent sized map and I still can’t read anything due to the weird lettering. 😉

    “but if I stop near Wrexham for a comfort break I’m arrested and put to break in the Bass mirror factory at Mold”

    Yes, but apparently it’s all the Bass you can drink during your breaks.

    “And Llandudno is awesome, which is an anagram of Orme.”

    I thought it was ‘no dull dan’, or maybe ‘ma so wee’ if we’re talking an anagram of awesome.

    “Outside loos Ty Coch”

    Coch eh? No comment.

    “perfect to wash down the hangover breakfast and give yourself another one.”

    I find just having another one is the best cure for a hangover.

    “OK, the locals are a little odd,”

    Agreed!

    “and a tremendous number of identical pale beers.”

    Agreed!

    “And not ALL the small buildings are micropubs.”

    Yet! 🙂

    Cheers
